The focus of Catrescue.id is sterilization of street cats through the Trap Neuter Return (TNR) program. However, almost all of the colonies that we monitor are located on the side of busy roads or in dangerous public spaces. So, we also hope they can find a loving home and responsible adopter.
We quite often see cats with conditions that require special attention including kittens, pregnant cats, wounded cats, sick cats, or senior cats. We try our best to find them a home that can help care for them temporarily (foster) or families who want to adopt them forever (adopter).
We expect the same quality of foster and adopter, so we hope that anyone interested in becoming a foster or adopter read the terms and complete the adoption form.
We hope that all street cats will get a safe home and a family that loves them as part of their family forever. Therefore, we will reject applicants who are ineligible and unwilling to cooperate.
We are looking for adopters and do not charge for adopted cats. However, we expect commitments from adopters to prepare pet supplies, pay for an initial health check by a veterinarian, sterilization, vaccination, and to pick up the cat themselves, as well as to accept them wholeheartedly considering they are street cats.

- Sign Catrescue.id Adoption Agreement before or when the cat is picked up.
- Accept the cat under any circumstances, considering the cat is a street cat.
- Sterilize and vaccinate the cat.
- Pick up the cat directly at the animal clinic, after getting the initial check and/or sterilization.
- Fully responsible for the welfare and health of the cat.
- Agree to not consume, use the cat to feed other animals, and/or breed the cat.
- Keep the cat in semi-outdoor and surveillance environments, but preferably fully indoor.
- If the cat needs to be kept in a cage, you need to let it walk around the house for several hours each day.
- Take the cat to the veterinarian and/or animal clinic when ill and to get vaccines, worms and fleas medicines, and regular health checks.
- Take the cat to get sterilized based on the agreed schedule, and place, if the animal is not sterilized when adopted.
- Prepare all required and necessary items to care for cats as listed here.
You also must take the following steps:
- MUST read and complete the Adoption Form below, accurately and truthfully, and comply with the terms outlined in the form as binding law for both parties.
- MUST complete, sign, and send the Adoption Agreement by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or, sign when picking up the cat.
- If the applicant is under 18 years, still in school, and/or does not have an income, the Adoption Agreement MUST be signed by the guardian of the applicant to ensure that the cat is fully accepted and will be taken care of together with the family of the applicant.
- If the applicant lives in a rented house or boarding house together with other residents, then the Adoption Agreement MUST be signed by the owner and all occupants to ensure the safety of the cat.
- MUST provide additional data when required either by telephone, e-mail, or other means of communication.
- MUST allow us to conduct a survey of the home environment and prospective families.
- MUST send a video showing the home environment and prospective families, if a direct survey cannot be conducted, via e-mail email@example.com.
- Give a trial period of 2 (two) weeks for the animal to adapt and if there are issues adopter must immediately report to Catrescue.id. The cat is a street cat, thus both parties should try their best to not return it to the street. Both parties MUST find the best solution for the cat.
- MUST provide an update about the cat (including photographs) at least once a month for the first 3 (three) months and periodically, via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
- MUST allow us to occasionally visit the cat to monitor their welfare and health, and request or take photos of the cat for publication. If at the time of our visit we find the cat in a poor condition such as being untreated despite being seriously ill, suffering a serious injury due to human actions or if the conditions are not safe and healthy for the cat, then it MUST be taken to the animal clinic or foster home immediately.
- MUST work together to find the best solution for the cat, and to reimburse the costs incurred if:
- The cat is discarded, ignored or returned without notice,
- The agreements and responsibilities are ignored,
- The cat needs treatment due to neglect and cruelty.
- If the adopter does not show a willingness to cooperate or complicate communication, the adopter will be reported to the authorities to hold them accountable as an adopter.
Prioritizing personal interests without considering the welfare and future of the cat cannot be justified and can be considered as animal cruelty.
